from gutenbook.org: "Added GNU GPL copyleft statements to all files. Fixed a couple minor bugs (example: opening a file and not actually selecting a file no longer instantiates an empty Etext object). Implemented a GtkNotebook for the library window such that each tab represents an alphabetical range of sorted Etext titles. Added a label to the library to indicate number of titles in range and total titles in index. Selecting/downloading an Etext now leaves that selected row visible in the GtkCList."

seen at freshmeat and from the site: "pybliographer is a tool for managing bibliographic databases. It currently supports BibTeX files for reading and writing, and can also read Ovid files... It can be used for searching, editing, reformatting, etc. In fact, it's a simple framework that provides easy to use python classes and functions, and therefore can be extended to any usage (generating HTML pages according to bibliographic searches, etc)."
from the Gutenbook site: Gutenbook is an app for downloading, and reading of etext books published electronically from the Gutenburg Project. it's fairly basic but it works, and has ports for linux (tk or qt) and windows. not only is this a needed app, it looks like a great starting point if you are interesting in learning to hack one of these environments (gtk-perl or kde/qt).
as seen at freshmeat: "iManager is an easy-to-navigate image manager with some extended features. It allows you to manage your family album or a big collection of images." it's kde/qt-based, so i can't try it myself. what do y'all think?
as seen at freshmeat: "This release adds backwards-incompatible API modifications, the ability to write to databases, an API for writing to databases, a QuickStart tutorial, Doxygen use for automatic documentation, prototype distributed searching, and multiple bug fixes. There are now no test suite failures." Visit open.muscat.com for more.
